Beast of the Night: Paul Millsap torched the Heat last night, putting up 46 points, 9 rebounds, 1 assist, 1 steal and 1 block. As if that weren’t enough, he hit all three of his three-point attempts (he went 1-9 from deep during all of 2009-10), shot 68 percent (19-28) from the field, 71 percent (5-7) from the line and had just one turnover in 43:27 of work in the overtime victory. Millsap is every fantasy owner’s man crush at the moment, so boast all you want if you own him.

Lines for Discussion:
J.J. Hickson: 8-17 FG (57%), 2-2 FT (100%), 18 Pts, 10 Reb, 1 Ast, 1 TO

Darren Collison: 12-14 FG (86%), 1-1 FT (100%), 4 threes, 29 Pts, 3 Reb, 6 Ast, 1 Stl, 2 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: John Wall did “The Dougie” then danced his way to 29 points, 2 rebounds, 13 assists, 9 steals and 8 turnovers. He shot 56 percent (9-16) from the field and 79 percent (11-14) from the line. It’s a flawed line and the rookie nearly notched a somewhat unsavory quadruple-double, but this was an eye-popping performance, especially for owners in leagues that don’t count turnovers.

Lines for Discussion:
Josh Smith: 3-11 FG (27%), 6 Pts, 11 Reb, 4 Ast, 2 Stl, 5 Blk

J.J. Hickson: 11-17 FG (65%), 9-11 FT (82%), 31 Pts, 5 Reb, 1 Stl, 5 TO (continue reading…)

Beast of the Night: Luol Deng ruined the Blazers last night, finishing with a career-high 40 points, 3 threes, 4 rebounds, 2 assists and a steal. He shot 74 percent (14-19) from the floor and 82 percent (9-11) from the free-throw line. Sell high if you can.

Lines for Discussion:
LaMarcus Aldridge: 12-19 FG (63%), 9-9 FT (100%), 33 Pts, 9 Reb, 1 Stl, 1 Blk

Nicolas Batum: 1-5 FG (20%), 1-2 FT (50%), 3 Pts, 1 Reb (continue reading…)
